My daughter is leaving her abusive partner with whom she had had 3 children, all under 2 years old. We want to her to rent from a private landlord (near where we live) as the local authority has no spare accommodation at the moment. Many of the letting agents round where we live say ‘No Housing Benefit Recipients’ etc etc so my question is this: If I take a tenancy out in my name and make it clear that my daughter and her children will be living there would the housing benefit still get paid to her (so my daughter can then pay it over to me)? Or, would the benefits people refuse on the grounds that as I rent the house my daughter is not entitled to the benefit?
